Implants are a permanent item that can be used to enhance your soldier with gameplay perks. Implants can be obtained from general gameplay by doing things such as capturing bases, killing enemies, and potentially support actions and alerts. They can also be obtained via the Depot for Certification Points or Station Cash, in packs of 3 or 5, or crafting using the new Nano-Cycler page also gives random implants. Implants are equipped on the loadout screen next to your melee weapon. There are currently three different tiers of implants. Tier 1 can be obtained from gameplay and the Depot packs. Tier 2 has a good chance of being in either of the Depot packs and can occasionally be gained from gameplay. Tier 3 can only be obtained via crafting.
Implants require energy to function and having one equipped constantly drains energy while you're alive. New consumables called the Super Charger and the Ultra Charger have been added which are required to use implants. Using a charger adds to your energy pool from which all implants draw their power and consumes the charger. Chargers can be obtained from general gameplay or combining two different tier implants. The Depot also has the Ultra Charger for sale for Certification Points or Station Cash. The tier of the implant decides how much energy is drained with tier 1 at 0.5, tier 2 at 0.75, and tier 3 at 1 per second.
An icon of the currently active Implant will also appear on the players Heads Up Display (HUD).

|Five Of The Same Tier Of Implants||A random implant of a tier higher than the tier used in the crafting process. Tier 3 implants can't be used this way.|
|Two Implants Of Different Tiers||A tier 1 and tier 2 implant create a Super Charger. A tier 2 and tier 3 implant create an Ultra Charger.|
Recently a new roadmap thread detailed some changes to implants based on feedback, the article has be en updated to reflect this. Nearing the release of Implants, Matthew Higby created a post detailing some of the upcoming items in Game Update 13. Some of which detailed the upcoming Implants, their abilities, and cost. These costs were in the form of certs and station cash and they decayed over time. The community at large disagreed with this and many believed they should be available permanently for large cert costs or via infantry resources. As a result of this feedback, SOE delayed Implants to change them up and take community feedback into play.
During development of Implants, there were three tiers of the implants with different icons similar to the design of Boosts. Some of these implants were removed, while others remained the same or merely changed names.
